One of the arguments against using solar power is that the panels are an eyesore and detract from the view. The China Merchants New Energy Group elected to do something about that and built a 248-acre solar farm – in the shape of a giant panda! They have plans to expand – and add a second panda to the array.

The solar panels are the same ones that were deemed “ugly”, but because of their arrangement it has become an attraction as well as a functional source of power for thousands.

How can you find a creative way to overcome some of the objections to your project? Maybe your solution lies in how you present the pieces.

Thanks Meg!
